Practical Information

House Rules

The section below highlights some of the key house rules. The full House Rules are available in myBlockman as a downloadable PDF document. The House Rules should be read in conjunction with the covenants in your Lease. In the case of any discrepancy, it is the House Rules PDF document that takes precedence.

Security

Security and general safety is in the interest of all residents and please ensure the following:

  • Do not admit anyone through the front door or through the basement stairs /lift lobbies unless you are fully satisfied that he/she has legitimate business within the block.
  • It is primarily the responsibility of each resident to control admission of their own guests and other callers. Do not admit anyone through the intercom who claims to have business with another resident, has forgotten/mislaid keys etc unless you can be certain that the request is valid.
  • As far as possible, see casual callers, tradesmen, etc off the premises and not just out of your own apartment.
  • Ensure that the self-locking mechanism in the entrance doors engages after you close it. If it is faulty please report it to the managing agent.
  • Do not leave the main entrance doors open by wedging or other means.
  • Do not keep the remote control for the entrance gates in your car. If a remote control is stolen then the security of the basement car park and stores is at risk.
  • Do not leave valuables in your car.

If you see any suspicious activity/persons please report it to Clontarf, Gardai on 01 6665600.

Refuse & Recycling

All refuse and recycling from the bins in the basement is collected weekly on Wednesdays.

The green recycling bins located in the bin store are for the collection of recycling materials including paper, cardboard, clean plastic bottles, beverage and food cartons including Tetra Pak.

Glass recycling is not currently offered on site, but there are bottle bins and clothing bins just down the road on Dollymount Park (opposite the church).

We request that each resident pay attention when carrying refuse to the designated areas to avoid spillage in the elevators and in common areas.

Old Electrical appliances, carpets, furniture, clothes, building material and debris must NOT be placed in the refuse/recycling bins. It is up to the apartment owner to dispose of such material. Misuse of the green recycling bin or the general waste bins will result in a €100 fine payable by the offending apartment resident. The resident shall be notified by letter and the fine put on to the service charge.

Noise

Any noise that may constitute an annoyance i.e. stereo, radio and tv etc. should be kept at a volume that will not interfere with your neighbour’s quiet enjoyment of their homes. There must be no noise from any apartments between 11pm and 8am. Please close your apartment door quietly. Please be considerate of your neighbours.

Balconies

The lease for your apartment limits the items that you are allowed to place on your balconies to garden furniture and planting. Nothing else is permitted: in particular, washing may not be hung on balconies or in the window areas inside apartments. Barbecues are a fire risk and are prohibited on balconies. Please remember to keep noise to a minimum to avoid disturbing other residents.

Common Areas
No items may be left in any of the common area including landings, stairwells and the car park. Please respect all common areas by not littering. When moving furniture etc. please ensure that the paintwork, fixtures and fittings are not damaged. Ball playing is not permitted.
Car Park
We remind all residents that cars should only be parked in the underground car park, in the designated car space and within the marked area. Please make sure your guests or employees do not use spaces allocated to other apartments. Only motor vehicles are allowed in the car park. Parking of boats, caravans or commercial vehicles is not allowed. The management company accepts no responsibility for damage to cars parked in the car park.
Bicycles
Bicycles must be stored in the designated bike cages only and must not be taken into or through the building or kept in apartments or on balconies or patios. Bicycles must not be locked to any gates or railings in the ownership of the OMC. Any bicycles locked to such gates or railings will be removed by the OMC.
